Apple Pressing - Romsey

Got too many apples ? Don’t know what to do with all those falls, but hate waste ?...

Transition Town Romsey invites you to bring your spare apples and/or pears to 3, Station Road, Romsey (next to the dentist) on Saturday September 25th and Sunday September 26th, where they will have a press available for use from 10.00a.m. – 4.00p.m. each day, to turn them into juice for free.
Everyone is welcome to bring their surplus fruit – any type of apple is suitable (including cookers) - as are falls. This year we will have a small and a medium-sized press - so anyone who wants to, should be able to have a go. There will also be apple-based snacks available to sample.
The resulting juice will keep for 3 days in the fridge; can be frozen; made into jelly; or for the more adventurous – it can be made into cider. Please remember to bring containers, such as plastic drinks/milk bottles (2 litre is easiest), to take the juice home in. There will also be sacks of the crushed apple pulp available to anyone who wants some for their composter, or as animal feed.

If you haven’t got any fruit, come along anyway - have a go at juicing, taste the resulting product, and find out about Romsey’s Community Orchard, where some of the fruit will have come from.

For more information or to donate fruit, email: transitiontownromseyweebly@gmail.com or make contact via Facebook.
10.00am - 4.00 pm both days. Free!
